Root Canal Treatment in
Springfield Township

If a tooth has a crack in its enamel, has suffered from a deep cavity or undergone repeated dental treatments, the inside can become infected requiring a root canal procedure. A root canal treatment involves cleaning out infected tissue from the inside of a tooth in order to save it from extraction.

Root Canal Treatment in Springfield Township

A root canal refers to the inside of a tooth. Inside the root canal is a soft tissue called pulp which houses the nerves and nourishing nutrients that every tooth needs during development. If the tooth has suffered damage or decay from a fracture, a deep cavity or repeated dental procedures, the pulp can become infected. The signs and symptoms are obvious when this occurs, as it most commonly causes significant pain.

A root canal procedure will alleviate your tooth pain by removing the infected pulp before it leads to a more serious issue. The procedure involves using a local anesthetic to numb the problematic tooth and the surrounding area. A dental dam will then be used to keep the tooth clean and dry throughout the procedure. Our dentist will then access the root canal through the top of the tooth. The infected pulp will be removed, and the root canal will be irrigated with water to flush out any remaining bacteria. To prevent further decay from developing, we will also apply an antimicrobial solution. Once the inside of the tooth is cleaned and dried, the empty space will be filled with a gutta-percha material. A dental crown will then be necessary to completely restore the tooth.

Service was excellent! Dr. Alkamary is absolutely the best dentist that I've ever been to! She's professional, polite and totally competent! I wish I had found her sooner. I would also like to commend her staff on managing a very efficient office. In addition, the word 'Spa' is truly fitting for this establishment. The soft music, scented candle, and hot wax hand treatment certainly would put anyone fearful of going to the dentist at ease. I would highly recommend Glamorous Smile Dental Spa!
